  • that is your prerogative... I have never been comfortable with kissing people on the lips that aren't my SO. My Mom and sister always have kissed EVERYONE on the lips! My Mom passed away, but before she died she taught my son to kiss her on the lips. For a while afterwards every time he would want to kiss me on the lips, it would remind me of my mom in an endearing way, but slowly I have retaught him to kiss me on the cheek because I just don't like it.

    I wouldn't let your kids make you feel bad about the lip-kiss thing. If you are not comfortable with that, its understandable. Just let them give you a peck on the cheek.

  • I'm not really that bothered by it 'cause the way I look at it, more then likely, if it's bad enough, I'll get it anyway. But if you don't fell comfy with it, you don't have to. It's your business. I'm not about to tell ANYONE how they HAVE to raise their kid/s.

  • If its a germ thing, then I get you. I will kiss my kids on the lips until they are about 4 or 5 and then they get embarrased by it, so we stop. My 3 yr old is fair game!! Hes also with me all day so we basically have the same germs. We go everywhere together.

  • When I was little my parents never kissed me on my lips but I would see my cousins get kissed on the lips and would think that was crazy like only adults kiss on the lips, but now that I have my own kids I kiss them on the lips and thery kiss me too. I guess it is people's perference.

    I love it one little peck is not going to hurt it is not like we kiss for along time on the lips just a quick peck that is all. They don't seem to mind unless we are in public.
